On Saturday, May 4th, Catholic Health Services was a proud sponsor of the 2013 Broward Arthritis Walk held at Bergeron Rodeo Grounds. The largest team at the event, Team CHS had over 100 walkers who represented the Catholic Health Services campuses, Troop 423 Seminole District Boy Scouts of America along with friends and family. The event was a huge success. The Arthritis Foundation raised over $65,000 and Team CHS certainly was part of the fight against arthritis!
The Arthritis Foundation is the leading health organization addressing the needs of 50 million Americans living with arthritis, the nation's most common cause of disability. Let's Move Together is a nationwide movement that encourages people to move daily for better health to prevent or treat arthritis. Moving just 30 minutes per day can ease joint pain, improve mobility and reduce fatigue.
The 5K walk had featured entertainment, light refreshments, goodie bags and educational opportunities.
